How Does a Heat Pump Work?
A heat pump is a device that can heat or cool your home by moving heat from one place to another. This heat transfer occurs when refrigerant in the system is pressurized and flows through the system. Reversing this flow allows a heat pump to shift between cooling and heating functions.
When you need to cool your home, a heat pump removes heat from the air inside and releases it outside. This is pretty much the same procedure that a traditional air conditioning unit uses, but the heating process is much different from how heaters work.
Instead of directly heating air, a heat pump extracts heat from the ground or outside air and transfers it to the air inside your home. This is possible even when temperatures outside feel cold to us because there’s always heat everywhere around us – even if we don’t feel particularly warm or hot.
What are the Benefits of a Heat Pump System?
If you are wondering whether or not to install a heat pump system, consider the following benefits over heaters and AC units:
- Provides both heating and cooling
- Less maintenance required
- Lower running costs
- Longer lifespan (15+ years vs. 10-15 years)
- More energy efficient
- Relatively quiet
- Doesn’t use gas
Is it Bad For a Heat Pump to Run All Night?
Heat pumps are very efficient HVAC systems. This is why more and more homeowners are making the switch to heat pumps. Due to their high efficiency levels, they aren't needed to run all night long or 24/7. In general homeowners shouldn't let their heat pumps run continuously and switch them off when they are not needed. In the long run this can reduce the efficiency of the unit making it work harder to heat homes and increase electric bills.
How to Know That a Heat Pump Needs Replacing
Because a heat pump is a much different device than a traditional AC unit or heater, you might not be familiar with some of the signs that it’s in need of repair or replacement.
If you notice any of the following, call 702 PlumbAIR for help:
- Running heat pump, but no heating or cooling noticeable
- Unable to switch between heating and cooling modes
- Strange smells
- Unusual sounds
- Short cycles
- Higher-than-usual energy bill
- Ice developing on coils
If you’ve noticed any of these signs, you may heat pump might just need a repair. If you’ve had it for more than 15 years or if it has required multiple repair efforts in the past, however, replacing it is probably the more financially sensible option.
